LONDON (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia had 73.1 million barrels of crude oil in three major storage sites as of early September, according to satellite data and analytics firm Ursa Space Systems.
At the country’s key export terminal Ras Tanura, Ursa said it observed 39.2 million barrels in storage, or about 60% of tank capacity, on Sept. 5.
Ursa observed 31.1 million barrels at Yanbu on Sept. 9 and 2.8 million barrels at Khafji on Sept. 5.
U.S.-based Ursa uses a network of radar satellites to monitor global oil storage as well as other key infrastructure.
